FOREWORD 



During the 1930s, two major exhibitions 
at The Toledo Museum of Art pre- 
sented modern Japanese prints to American 
audiences. They reflected a nationwide 
interest in then-contemporary Japanese art, 
particularly color woodblock prints. The 
international art world of the twenties and 
thirties was permeated by intercultural 
exchange: American artists and collectors 
were intrigued by Japanese art forms, while 
Japanese artists were assimilating Western 
traditions. Other U.S. museums exhibited 
the delicate and bold work of modern 
Japanese artists, including the Detroit 
Institute of Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, 
Boston, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, 
Washington, D.C. However, the Toledo 
Museum was the first to publish in a detailed 
and scholarly fashion the works of fifteen of 
these printmakers. Even today, the Toledo 
catalogues remain one of the basic sources for 
information on Japanese printmaking in the 
years prior to World War II. Five hundred 
copies of each were printed, and they have 
been out of print since the exhibitions closed. 



As was the custom at the time, the prints 
were for sale, and hundreds were ordered 
from Japan during both exhibitions. Hubert 
D. Bennett, President of Toledo Scale 
Company and a Trustee of the Museum, was 
particularly fascinated by the medium. In 
1 939 he generously gave the Toledo Mu- 
seum the 393 modern Japanese prints he had 
acquired, including work by Goyo, Shinsui, 
Hasui, Suizen, Shunsen, Kazuma, Shoson, 
Toyonari, Yoshida, Kampo, and Shiro. These 
images, and others acquired in later years, all 
appeared in the two exhibitions. All of the 
prints are still in remarkably good condition, 
showing the freshness of their original colors. 

The occasion for this reprint is the exhibi- 
tion Hiroshi Yoshida: Master Printmaker, 
which opened at the Toledo Museum April 
15, 1997. The Museum owns 135 prints by 
Yoshida, today considered one of the masters 
of modern Japanese landscape printmaking. 
This is more than half of his total oeuvre, 
forming one of the most comprehensive 
collections of his work in the United States. 



J. Arthur MacLean, Curator of Oriental Art, 
and Dorothy Blair, Assistant Curator, 
prepared the two exhibitions, displayed in 
March 1930 and January 1936. Dorothy 
Blair wrote the accompanying illustrated 
catalogues. We acknowledge her work by 
placing her name on the title page of this new 
edition. Based on enthusiastic national press 
notices, including an article in the American 
Magazine of Art, the 1930 exhibition was 
shown at the Honolulu Academy of Arts on 
its way back to Japan. The College Art 
Association circulated the 1936 exhibition to 
the Chattanooga Art Association; the George 
Walter Vincent Smith Art Gallery, Spring- 
field, Massachusetts; and the Seattle Art 
Museum, all of which acquired prints for 
their collections. 



This book reprints the 1930 and the 1936 
exhibition catalogues based on archival 
copies in the Museums Art Reference 
Library. The two paperbound catalogues 
were somewhat different in size; they have 
been photographically adjusted to a trim size 
of six by nine inches. A new title page has 
been added and this brief foreword. A 
concordance of Toledo Museum accessions 
from these exhibitions and an index of 
artists' names, as transliterated in the original 
catalogues, have been added.

FOREWORD 

JAPANESE wood-block prints have been recognized since they first came to 
the attention of the western world as the finest examples of this type of 
graphic art that the world has ever seen. A continued interest in them, therefore, 
is but natural. Since the time of Hiroshige and Hokusai, however, they have lost 
the prestige they once had, and interest in them has been correspondingly small. 
We are now introduced to a new era of Japanese wood-block prints which may 
be called a period of Renaissance in this particular field. In any event, the last 
decade has seen a wonderful improvement in Japan in this phase of graphic arts. 
Several men have been responsible for this Renaissance and for raising the standard 
of Japanese prints. Among them are the ten represented in this exhibition. 

It has been possible to acquire three hundred and forty-two titles represent- 
ing the work of these men, the basis of a comprehensive survey of Japanese artists 
in this field. They include Hashiguchi-Goyo, Ito-Shinsui, Kawase-Hasui, Miki- 
Suizan, Natori-Shunsen, Oda-Kazuma, Ohara-Shoson, Yamamura-Koka, Yoshida- 
Hiroshi and Yoshikawa-Kampo. 

Others might be included, of course, but the scope of the exhibition did not 
warrant the inclusion of all and the men chosen are in our opinion representative 
men in the field. 

Due to the fact that the great earthquake cataclysm of 1923 not only destroyed 
the blocks of many of the titles represented in this exhibition, but also many of 
the prints, it is apropos that an inclusive catalogue include a descriptive record of 
each title and an illustration of each print. 

In this catalogue we have endeavored to record, as far as we are able, the color 
schemes of these colorful graphic expressions, using the nomenclature of the 
Toledo Museum School of Design. These prints are so similar to their prototypes 
of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, and yet so often different, in 
the use of color, that it became an interesting and finally a primary consideration 
in compiling the descriptive text of the catalogue. 

It has not been possible to assemble all the titles printed in the last ten years 
by the ten artists named above. Some of the editions are entirely out, others are 
scarce and many were destroyed in 1923, but so far as we know the count is 
nearly complete. It is due to the splendid co-operation of our friend, Hiroshi 
Yoshida, wood-block print designer of Tokyo, that our exhibition is so complete. 
Our thanks are due to Mr. Yoshida and to those who assisted in assembling 
and preparing the titles. 

No particular effort has been made in America to collect modern wood-block 
prints; therefore an inclusive contemporary exhibition of this character is re- 
freshing and of great interest, not only because it gives a bird's eye view of the 
activity in the field of wood-block printing in the last decade, but because such an 
exposition is like a picture album of every-day life in Japan, from 191 9 to 1929, 
the inclusive dates, making an historical and reference record for ourselves as well 
as for others. We recognize the skill of the designer, the block-cutter and printer, 
all three, whose skill in the past and even today has probably been unsurpassed. 
And furthermore it was Japanese wood-block printing that first introduced to 
the western world the art of Japan, while many a feature of present day graphic 
art in Europe and America has been gleaned from this source. 

Some of the prints are no longer available, as the editions as a rule are small, 
but many are available and may be purchased. 




5 Girl Combing Her Hai 



HASHIGUCHI-KIYOSHI (GOYO) 

Hashiguchi-Goyo* in his early years bore the name of Hashiguchi Kiyoshi, 
but when young he was much impressed by a beautiful pine tree which grew in 
his father's garden called "Goyo no matsu," the pine tree of five needles, there- 
fore, he took as his artist name that of "Coyo" meaning Go (five) Yo (needles or 
leaves). He was born December 2, 1880 and died February 24, 1921 at the age of 
forty. He lived in the island of Kyushu. In 1899 he went to Tokyo and became 
the pupil of Hashimoto Gaho, who was then one of the greatest exponents of 
painting. He very soon took up the Western style of painting and finally graduated 
from the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1905 as one of the most promising students 
of his time. It was about this time that he began to design color prints at the re- 
quest of Watanabe-Shozaburo, a publisher in Tokyo who has done much to en- 
courage the modern revival of graphic arts in Japan. Not only does he design for 
wood-block prints but he illustrates, designs book covers, and paints both in 
European and Japanese style. At the Teiten (the Imperial Fine Art Exhibition) 
in Tokyo he received the highest award for one of his paintings entitled 
"Peacock and Indian Woman. " 

He is the outstanding print designer of modern times and his untimely death 
was a great loss to the school of Japanese graphic artists. His figures are to be 
compared most favorably with those of earlier artists who have made wood-block 
prints famous the world over. Prints by him are exceedingly rare as both blocks and 
existing prints were destroyed in the recent earthquake devastation of 1923. 

His greatest ability is shown in his figure prints rather than in his landscapes 
or miscellaneous subjects.

ITOHAJIME (SHINSUI) 

Ito-Hajime, whose artist name is Shinsui, was born in Tokyo in 1896. When 
a young boy, about twelve years of age, he worked for the Tokyo Printing Com- 
pany, where he helped in drawing designs. Later, he decided to study art and 
became the pupil of Kaburaki-Kiyokata. After studying four years with Kaburaki- 
Kiyokata, his work was accepted by the Nihon Bijutsu-in Tenrankai, or Japanese 
Art Institute. From that time on he has received awards of special mention 
and medals for his paintings. He is primarily a painter, but is also a de- 
signer of wood-block prints, and noted as both painter and print designer of 
typical feminine types. Watanabe-Shozaburo is his publisher. His female portrait 
heads represent his best work. They have a human softness coupled with strength 
of design that ranks them among the best.

Kawase-Bunjiro, who is known by his artist name, Hasui, is at present de' 
voting his entire time to designing wood-block prints. He began his first wood- 
block printing in 1918 and from that time up to the earthquake fire in 1923 Wa- 
tanabe-Shozaburo had published one hundred and twenty different subjects from 
his brush. Before 1918 he was a painter in the European style but later became 
a pupil of Kaburaki-Kiyokata. He excels in views in and around his native city of 
Tokyo. He was born in Tokyo in 1883. His fondness for travel has caused him to 
incorporate this hobby in the subject matter of his prints, the most noticeable 
being those known as "Souvenirs of Travel," First, Second, and Third Series.

116 Tea Ceremony at Cherry Dance 



MIKI-SAIICHIRO (SUIZAN) 

Miki-Sanchiro, whose artist name is Suizan, is a native of Kinashi, Katogun, in 
Hyogo prefecture, where he was born in July 1887. He received his artist's train- 
ing in the Japanese style of painting under Takeuchi-Seiho, and his paintings have 
been shown in ten of the annual exhibitions held under the auspices of the De- 
partment of Education and by the Imperial Fine Arts Academy. Suizan has an 
interesting hobby in the cultivation of chrysanthemums and the collecting of 
ceramic wares, paintings and beautiful textiles of old Japan. It is hard to say 
whether he excels in figures or landscapes, but perhaps his landscapes are 
simpler and often more effective than his figures. 

Sato-Shotaro, Kyoto, publishes his work.

130 ICHIMURA UZAYEMON AS NaOJI 



NATORI-YOSHINOSUKE (SHUNSEN) 

His artist name is Na tori -Shunsen and he generally signs his prints Shunsen. 
He was born in Tokyo in 1886 and when he took up his painting career became a 
pupil of Kubota-Beisen, a painter in traditional Japanese style. He finished a 
special course at the Tokyo School of Fine Art and for a while worked at the 
Tokyo Asahi Shimbun, a Tokyo daily newspaper, as an illustrator. At present 
he is secretary of the Theatrical Painters' Association of Japan, known as the 
Nihon Gekiga Kyokai. Since 1925, at the request of the Watanabe print shop, he 
has designed portraits of actors, one print for each month. At present he has com- 
pleted a set of thirty-six. He has received the Prize awarded by the Nihon Bijutsu- 
in (Japan Art Institute). His hobby is ski-ing. His character portraits vary, 
flavoring more of the theatre than of the Studio as perhaps they should.

OHARA-MATAO (SHOSON) 

Ohara-Matao, who was born in Kanazawa City, Kaga Province, in 1878, 
first used the artist name "Koson" but changed this in 191 2 to "Shoson." He 
was the pupil of Suzuki-Kason, in Tokyo, and studied the Japanese style of 
painting. Under the direction of Ernest Fenollosa he sent a large number of paint- 
ings, chiefly of flower and bird subjects, to America to be sold. He also had some 
of his bird and flower subjects published as color prints. In 191 1, however, he 
stopped designing prints and devoted himself entirely to painting in Japanese 
style, until, in 1926, at the request of the Watanabe print shop, he again began 
to design flower and bird compositions for wood-block prints. 

Shoson's love of nature shows in the beautiful nature study prints for which 
he is justly famous.

279 Obatan Parrot 

YOSHIDA-HIROSHI 

This artist uses no other name and has the pleasant concept of autographing 
his prints. He was born in 1876 in Kurume City, Chikugo Province, Kyushu. 

In Kyoto he studied under Tamura'Soryu and in Tokyo under Koyama- 
Shotaro. Subsequently he travelled in Europe and America with the idea of securing 
further training as an artist. Though primarily a landscape painter in oil, especially 
mountain scenery, lately he has turned his attention to wood-block prints. 
He has received several Prizes at the annual art exhibitions held in Tokyo under 
the auspices of the Department of Education and has served on the Committee 
of Judges. At present he is a member of the Committee of Judges of the Imperial 
Fine Arts Academy Exhibitions. 

Yoshida designs every detail of his prints and often cuts the key block himself 
and often prints from his own blocks. He has about one hundred titles up to the 
present time, which divide themselves somewhat into series, such as Mountain 
Series, American Series, European Series, Fuji Series, etc.

PREFACE 

Five years ago, in 1930, an exhibition of the best work of ten of the wood' 
block designers of Japan was inaugurated by the Department of Oriental Art. It 
was a great success and at that time it was proposed that a similar exhibition be held 
every five years in order that the progress of this interesting phase of Japanese 
graphic art might be made visible to our public. After this first exhibition, plans for 
a second exhibition were consummated, with the result that two hundred and eighty 
nine more prints were assembled from the portfolios of ten artists. These are now 
visible to our public. This second exhibition, in reality an extension of the first, is, 
therefore, an exceedingly interesting one from a retrospective point of view, and a 
refreshing exposition of a modern phase of activity which, in the main, is traditional 
in style but also, in part, decidedly modern. As an exhibition it is colorful, appealing 
particularly both to our sense of artistic representation and our appreciation of 
skilful design in a medium which appeals to all. 

The catalogue of the 1930 exhibition was found to be of real aid to those who 
were interested in the purchase of the many modern prints that are now available. 
It helped collectors and those who buy occasional prints, dealers, both Occidental 
and Oriental, museum men, and others. It is still in demand but unfortunately out 
of print. This present catalogue follows the general form of the first, making a con' 
tinuous reference source for similar data. 

Five years ago there was no particular demand for modern Japanese prints. 
Today such a statement is no longer true. Museum collections are being formed and 
many a private collector finds them as interesting as the more expensive prints of 
former times. 

In choosing the artists whose work was to be shown care has been used so 
that a fair cross section of the work of the wood'block print designers of present'day 
Japan would be achieved. The ten men chosen were: HirancHakuho; Kawasc 
Bunjiro, better known as Hasui; Kobayakawa'Kiyoshi; Torii-Kotondo; ItO'Hajime, 
better known as Shinsui; Kasamatsu'Shiro; Ohara'Matao, better known as Shoson; 
Natori'Yoshinosuke, better known as Shunsen; Yoshida'Hiroshi, and Nomura' 
Yoshimitsu. An effort has been made to record the Japanese title of each print, and 
its English equivalent, as literally as possible; also all of the data that appears on the 
print, either on the face of the print or on the margin, so that anyone owning one 
of these prints may make his own record of pertinent data. Translators are not always 
available and, furthermore, dates and inscriptions are sometimes difficult to translate. 
In this difficult matter we have been greatly assisted by Mr. Hiroshi Yoshida, to 
whom we are deeply grateful. Mr. Yoshida is a painter and wood'block designer of 
repute and only through his friendship of long standing and his knowledge in the 
field of wood'block printing could we have expected to succeed in this undertaking. 

The catalogue is arranged alphabetically according to artists. There is also a 
biographical sketch of each artist. The descriptive text for each print includes an 
official title (the artist's); a short descriptive text, enough to distinguish the print; 
the signature; the date; the copyright, whenever it appears; the series' name and the 
number in the series, when given; the size, not including margins; the number of 
blocks used; the number of superimposed printings; and the total of the edition. 
Every print is illustrated, not so much as an illustrative feature as a reference so 
that the subject matter of each print may be referred to for its pictorial content, 
thus augmenting the descriptive text. 

The process of wood'block printing today is quite like that followed in earlier 
periods. The artist or designer paints his cartoon with a brush and designates the 
color scheme. The wood'block cutter, a craftsman often working independently of 
the designer, meticulously follows the outline of each brush'Stroke and cuts the 
pictures in relief. The printer, still another independent worker, prints the edition. 
Sometimes the designer himself cuts the blocks and prints the edition, but generally 
the designer turns his original work over to a publisher, who furnishes the cutter and 



the printer and also becomes the distributing agent. Japanese block-prints are not 
printed in a press but are rubbed from the back by hand, producing a far more subtle 
and artistic effect. Great care must be exercised in synchronizing the various blocks 
(there is a block for practically every color used), and these blocks run as high as 
twenty for a single print. For instance, Number 272 in the exhibition was printed 
from twenty blocks with eighty superimposed printings, every one of which had to 
be minutely synchronised in order to produce a flawless print. Very strong fibrous 
paper is used (generally Hoshi) and expensive colors (powdered water-color). Cherry- 
wood blocks are universally used. 

Wood-block printing has an enviable tradition in Japan, and, as a matter of 
fact, was one of the first forms of Japanese art to be brought to the attention of the 
western world. Many artists are now working in this phase of graphic arts, and 
therefore many more prints could have been assembled for the exhibition, had not 
space precluded a larger selection. The prints chosen are, however, representative 
of the larger group. A survey of this exhibition is like looking at a picture-book of 
the modern life of Japan during the past five years. There are street scenes, home 
scenes, country and city life, scenic beauty and popular pilgrimages, temples, theatres 
and actors. There is also a whole group of East Indian scenes, the result of recent 
foreign travel by one of the artists. 

Modern Japanese prints will become more and more the vogue because they 
are conceded not only to have eminent artistic qualities but also to represent tech- 
nical perfection. They are well within the means of those who love fine things, for 
their intrinsic value is comparatively small. All who possess modern Japanese prints 
find them a great source of pleasure. 



BIOGRAPHICAL DATA 

Heading the biography of each of the ten artists represented in the Exhibition 
is a typical print by that particular artist. The biographical data is naturally not 
complete but includes the salient points available at this time. The artists' names are 
actually arranged alphabetically according to their signatures as they appear on the 
prints, but are written in the Japanese manner, with the family name first. 



HIRANOHAKUHO 




Girl Before A Mirror 



By Hakuho 



HirancHakuho signs his prints lv Hakuho , \ He completes his name by the use 
of a vermilion seal, "fiirano", below his signature. He was born in Kyoto in 1879 
and from early childhood made the study of Ukiyoe painting (the school which in 
the eighteenth century sponsored the great school of wood-block printing) his 
particular interest. The great masters of early times also interested him, but the 
trend of the modern school kept his attention centered on the kind of work of which 
the two examples of his own work shown are typical. The excellence of these items 
ranks him with the justly famous men of the eighteenth century. His special interest 
and talent lie in the delineation of women. Unfortunately only two examples of the 
work of this skilful wood-block designer and artist could be secured. 



KAWASE-BUNJIRO (Hasui) 




43, Temple of Hachiman 



By Hasui 



Kawase'Bunjiro signs his prints "Hasui", a pseudonym that he uses on all 
prints, together with a seal, stamped in red, of an interesting decorative form without 
any translatable meaning. He devotes practically all of his time to wood'block 
designing, the results of which are published by that excellent and old-time house 
so admirably managed by Watanabe-Shozaburo of Tokyo. Hasui was born in 1883 
in Tokyo. He began painting when he was six years of age, in western style, but lately 
became the pupil of Kaburaki-Kiyokata.Heisa traveler and puts to use the observations 
of his travel; therefore, the subject matter of his prints extends to many interests, 
the most noticeable of which are his "Souvenirs of Travel". He also has published 
books and in the library of The Toledo Museum of Art may be found his latest 
publication "Gosho Ningyo" (Court Dolls), a collection of prints representing various 
dolls of a traditional type. It is interesting to note that our current exhibition in- 
eludes two titles, one, Number 44, "A Child with a Ball", and the other, Number 
45, "A Child with a Doll", which are unusual in the portfolio of this artist, his work 
being, as a rule, primarily centered on scenic views. 



KOBAYAKAWA-KIYOSHI 




1 26 After a Hot Bath 



By Kiyoshi 



Kobayakawa-Kiyoshi generally signs his prints "Kiyoshi", together with a red 
seal, "Kobayakawa," which takes different forms. In this exhibition there are seven 
different forms. He was born in 1896 and at the age of twenty entered the studio 
of the artist Kaburagi'Kiyokata. In the annual Tokyo salon (the Imperial Art Ex- 
hibition) he has been favored with an entry every year since 1924. His work, "Okiku 
of Nagasaki" (Imperial Art Exhibition, 1924) was especially recognized. In 193,3 he 
was awarded the special rank of To\usen for his work entitled "Ichimaru". A print 
of this title is to be seen in this exhibition, Number 124. His favorite subjects appear 
to be modern women, in brilliant colors, sometimes ultra-modern women, but such 
prints as Numbers 124 and 126 show with what delicacy and strength he can handle 
his subject matter. 



TORII-KOTONDO 




Torii-Kotondo belongs to the oldest and only existing family of the Torii 
School, which furnished such master wood-block designers as Kiyonobu, Kiyomasa 
and Kiyomitsu. He signs his prints "Kotondo", followed by a red seal, varying 
in form. In the exhibition there are eight different seals used, reading either "Kotondo" 
or "Torii", and one which is merely decorative. Kotondo was born in Tokyo in 
1900. When nineteen he entered the studio of Kobori-Tomone. Later he became a 
pupil of Kaburagi-Kiyokata. Since the retirement of his father he has painted thea- 
trical pictures, a traditional interest of his family .He also designs stage sets and 
scenery, especially those entailing historical research in connection with historical 
plays. Since 1927 he has been producing wood-block prints. His favorite subjects 
seem to be women, drawn very much after the traditional style of his forebears. 
Such prints as Numbers 13,1, 1 3,3, and 137 convincingly show what a master he is 
of subtle grace and powerful design. 



ITOHAJIME (Shinsui) 




59 Snow-storm 



By Shinsui 



ItO'Hajime, whose artist-name is Shinsui, was born in Tokyo in 1896. He'signs 
his name "Shinsur 1 and in the nineteen prints of this exhibition he has used six 
different seals all reading "Shinsui". When a young boy, about twelve years of age, 
he worked for the Tokyo Printing Company, where he helped in drawing designs. 
Later, he decided to study art and became the pupil of Kaburagi-Kiyokata. After 
studying five years with Kaburagi-Kiyokata, his work was accepted by the Nihon 
Bijutsu-in Tenrankai, or Japanese Art Institute Exhibition. From that time on he 
received awards of special mention and medals for his paintings. He is primarily a 
painter, but is a designer of wood-block prints, and noted as both painter and print 
designer of typical feminine types. Watanabe-Shozaburo is his publisher. His female 
portrait heads represent his best work. They have a human softness coupled with 
strength of design that ranks them among the best. Ito-Shinsui has two personal 
hobbies, travel and the writing of verses. 



KASAMATSU-SHIRO 




167 Evening Sky, Suwa Shrine 



By Shiro 



Kasamatsu-Shiro uses the name "Shiro", with which to sign his prints; also 
various seals. Of the eight seals which he has used for the prints included in this 
exhibition one reads, "Kasamatsu"; two read "Shi"; one, "Shiro In"; three, "Shiro"; 
one is a decorative pine design. He was born in Tokyo in 1898. He became a pupil 
of the artist Kaburagi-Kiyokata and for several years has won an entry in the Im- 
perial Art Exhibition. His special interest is in the classical dance, the Noh, and he 
designs Noh masks therefor. Number 163 in this exhibition is a print of special 
interest and a general favorite. 



OHARA-MATAO (Shoson) 




182 Morning Glories 



By Shoson 



Ohara'Matao, who was born in Kanazawa City, Kaga Province, in 1878, first 
used the artist name "Koson" but changed this in 191 2 to "Shoson", the signature 
he now uses. He was the pupil of Suzuki-Kason, in Tokyo, and studied the Japanese 
style of painting. Under the direction of Ernest Fenollosa he sent a large number of 
paintings, chiefly of flower and bird subjects, to America to be sold. He also had 
some of his bird and flower subjects published as color prints. In 191 1, however, he 
stopped designing prints and devoted himself entirely to painting in Japanese style, 
until, in 1926, at the request of the Watanabe print shop, he again began to design 
flower and bird compositions for wood-block prints. 

Shoson's love of nature shows in the beautiful nature study prints for which 
he is justly famous. 

In connection with his signatures he uses the seal Shoson" which appears on 
the prints in the exhibition in four different forms. 



NATORI-YOSHINOSUKE (Shunsen) 




210 Onoye Kikugoro 



By Shunsen 



The artist-name of Natori-Yoshinosuke is "Shunsen", with which he generally 
signs his prints. His seals, however, are varied, five appearing in this exhibition, 
reading "Shun", "Shinkai", "Natori", "Shunsen", and Taishido". He was born in 
Tokyo in 1886 and when he took up his painting career became a pupil of Kubota- 
Beisen, a painter in traditional Japanese style. He finished a special course at the 
Tokyo School of Fine Art and for a while worked as an illustrator at the Tokyo 
Asahi Shimbun, a Tokyo daily newspaper. At present he is secretary of the Thea- 
trical Painters' Association of Japan, known as the Nihon Gekiga Kyokai. Since 
1925, at the request of the Watanabe print shop, he has designed portraits of actors, 
one print for each month. He has received the Prize awarded by the Nihon Bijutsu- 
in (Japan Art Institute). His hobby is ski-ing. His character portraits vary, flavoring 
more of the theatre than of the studio, as perhaps they should. 



YOSHIDA-HIROSHI 




272 Kono Festival 



By Yoshida 



Yoshida-Hiroshi uses the name Yoshida as an autographed signature on his 
prints, and a seal, "Hiroshi". He was born in Kyushu in 1876. In Kyoto he studied 
under Tamura-Soryu and in Tokyo under Koyama-Shotaro. Subsequently he traveled 
in Europe and America with the idea of securing further training as an artist. He 
has also traveled in Egypt and India and has designed a series of prints under these 
headings. His latest travel, to India, is well represented in the present exhibition by 
thirty-two titles. Though primarily a landscape painter in oil he is also actively 
engaged in the making of wood-block prints. He is a versatile artist, but perhaps his 
outstanding contribution to wood-block printing lies in the especially large blocks 
which he seems to handle with consummate ease. An oversize block adds very much 
indeed to the difficulties of synchronizing the color registers, but Number 217 in 
this exhibition shows with what skill this artist manages this difficult process. He 
designs every detail of his prints, often cuts the key block himself, and often prints 
from his own blocks in order to get exactly the effect he desires. 

He has received prizes at the annual Imperial Art Salons, and for a number of 
years has been a member of the Judging Committee of the Imperial Fine Arts 
Academy Exhibitions. 



NOMURA-YOSHIMITSU 




289 Snow on Kamo River 



By Yoshimitsu 



Nomura-Yoshimitsu comes from a family of Ukiyoe painters which has continued 
for four generations, ever since his greatgrandfather Yoshikuni I was direct pupil 
of Utagawa Kuniyoshi of Yedo. For three generations they successively used the same 
pseudonym Yoshikuni until the present Yoshimitsu assumed another name. Having 
been brought up in such a family Yoshimitsu was thoroughly taught Ukiyoe painting 
by his father and grandfather. At an early age he established his own school and 
became quite well known. In 1891 when a French painter, Monsieur Pigot by name, 
came to Kyoto, by a rare chance Yoshimitsu became his pupil and enthusiastically 
studied European painting and panoramic scenery. In the same year a great pano- 
ramic picture representing a scene in the American Civil War attracted widespread 
attention. Later he painted a scene of the War in Satsuma and had the honor of being 
visited by H. I. H., the Prince Arisugawa. In 1895 he painted for the Fourth In- 
dustrial Exhibition held in Kyoto a scene of the attack on Port Arthur during the 
Japanese-Chinese War, 1894-1895, which was highly appreciated by Admiral Saigo 
and General Oyama. Thus he became famous and has more than thirty panoramic 
pictures to his credit. 



By a joint use of the styles of Ukiyoe painting and of panoramic landscape he 
not only achieved the painting of interesting stage backgrounds for the Miyako 
Odori, or Cherry Dance, but has been the sole painter of this kind of scenery for 
more than twenty years. Yoshimitsu has designed a few landscape subjects for color 
prints. Recently, he made a set of six landscape prints which have been published 
under the title of "Kyoraku Melsho ,, (Famous Places of Kyoto). The characteristics 
of this set are their unique compositions and refined color scheme, together with the 
joint use of the style of Ukiyoe painting and the method of European panoramic 
sceneries skilfully harmonized by his talent. 



CATALOGUE 

The sequence has been arranged alphabetically according to the signatures 
used by the artists. The sizes given are those of actual picture areas and do not in' 
elude margins. The vertical measure is given first, followed by the horizontal measure.

The Toledo Public Library and the Library of the Museum have arranged special groups of boo\s 
on Japan and Japanese prints which will be available for readers. 

It is hoped that some of these beautiful examples of graphic art may be purchased. Prices are available 
upon request, and are well within the means of those who may wish to purchase. 

The exhibition will be circuited to various museums in the United States after the close of our exhibi- 
tion. The College Art Association, 137 east 57th Street, J<[ew York City, have taken over the management of 
the circuit. To this Association we are indebted for the mounting of the prints. 



The color design on the cover of the catalogue has been chosen as a symbol of the exhibition. It is a 
Japanese baren, or rubbing pad, used by all wood'blocf{ printers in producing a color print. A braided, cir' 
cular mat is stitched down to a stiff backing and the whole thing covered with a sheath of bamboo skin tied 
at the bacl{ to form a handle. Grasping this handle the printer after laying the prmVpaper upon the bloc\, 
rubs the bac\ of the paper with the baren, thus transferring the color from the bloc\ to the paper. This is 
the simple means by which the Japanese color'print is finally produced. Mr. Hiroshi Toshida has used this 
symbol as a seal upon some of his Iprints and it is re^roduoed here at, tKe oymbol of tWw particular exhibition.

CONCORDANCE 

by Catalogue Number 



The Toledo Museum of Art acquired many of the images shown in these two exhibitions, 
most of them thanks to the generosity of Hubert D. Bennett. This concordance lists the 
Museum's prints by catalogue number; accessions from the 1930 catalogue are listed first, 
followed by those from the 1 936 catalogue. 

Note: At The Toledo Museum of Art the four digits to the left of the period in the 
accession number represent the year in which the object was accessioned. In earlier 
publications the first two digits performed the same function. For example, the current 
ace. no. 1939.1 10 is the same as the former ace. no. 39.1 10. The digits following the 
period indicate the sequence of accession within the year, e.g. 1939.1 10 indicates the one 
hundred and tenth work accessioned in 1 939.
